One of Bethesda’s big promises with Fallout 4 was the inclusion of mod support on their console versions. With no sign of support almost a year after release, players are growing restless. Fear not, Fallout 4 mods will be supported across all platforms this June.
I personally own all of the Elder Scrolls and Fallout games and besides the obvious, one thing is very common among them. Gamers love these titles so much, they have created more content than the original games. Skyrim alone has 27,368 mods on Steam and that’s only one source for the mods. With this in mind Bethesda has made the smart choice of including a ‘Creation Kit’ with their games.
The ‘Creation Kit’ due to be released in June will contain the tools used to create Fallout 4. Access to these tools will allow players to create virtually anything on PC and easily port it to console. This is very exciting because previous console releases haven’t supported mods in the past, despite immense demand. In the past, these kits have been fairly easy to use, once you get an understanding for the program. Expect to hear about all sorts of mods, ranging from hair styles and clothes, to entire new areas with custom voice acting, music and more.
Owners of the game on PC can get a head start on building Fallout 4 mods. By right clicking Fallout 4 in your Steam library, selecting ‘Betas’ and waiting for the game to update, you will gain access to the creation kit. Fallout 4 will never be the same. If the video Bethesda posted is any indication of what to expect, we can look forward to hassle free and clean-looking mods. Of course, adding modded content can crash your game, so do everyone a favor and mod responsibly.
